Summary
"Whether we like it or not, America is an empire. Jim Garrison urges us to face up to the complexities and responsibilities inherent in that indisputable fact." "Garrison traces the roots of the American Empire to the very beginnings of the republic, in particular to the historic willingness of the United States to use military might in the defense of two foreign policy objectives: protection of American commercial interests and the promotion of democracy." "Garrison examines the rise and fall of empires and ponders the question of how long the American Empire can last. He argues that the U.S. can gain important insights into durability from the Romans, detailing the interplay between military power, political institutions, and legal structures that enabled the Roman Empire to last for a thousand years. But the core question, Garrison asserts, is what kind of empire can and should America be? As the sole superpower, America must lead in shaping a new global order, just as after World War II Roosevelt and Truman took the lead in shaping a new international order. That international order is now crumbling under the pressures of globalization, persistent poverty, terrorism, fundamentalism, and U.S. foreign policy itself."--BOOK JACKET
